Features


Patented Forward-Focused Bipolar Array

Offers the ultimate balance between room-filling sound and a precise center image, while giving you total placement flexibility.

Integrated 8" Powered Subwoofer and Bass Vent

Integrated subwoofer offers deeper, more impactful bass from the tower speaker without the need to add a separate subwoofer.

Intelligent Bass Control™

Gives you the ability to modulate deep bass up or down in level while simultaneously maintaining mid-range tonal balance.

Dolby Atmos Certified & DTS:X Compatible

Remove the magnetically-sealed, top panel from the speaker and place the A90 elevation speaker module (sold separately) within the top of your speaker to hear and feel multi-dimensional sound.

Aluminum Dome Tweeters

Tweeters play higher in frequency than what is heard by the human ear, creating an authentic reproduction of sound as the artist intends in the studio or concert hall.

Balanced Double Surround System

Improves driver excursion which results in the selected driver producing bass output usually associated with a larger driver while retaining the improved dispersion and midrange definition of a smaller driver.

Acoustically Transparent Grille

Enjoy the subtle elegance of the speaker design without having to remove a speaker grille to enjoy natural, uncolored sound.

Totally Inert, Resonance-Free Cabinet

Maximum rigidity with strategically placed bracing improves imaging while reducing resonance, further reinforcing our clean and powerful sound.

Cast Aluminum Base with Spikes and Floor Glides

The wide footprint increases overall stability of the tower speaker, while the addition of spikes or floor glides help keep your speakers firmly in place.

Minimalist Design

Powerful minimalist aesthetic with precision-machined components creates a sophisticated look to complement the most distinguished home theater. The sharp lines of the BP9000 Series also echo its precise sonic signature.

LED Backlit Definitive Technology Logo

To highlight the integrated powered subwoofer and show that your speaker is receiving a signal, we’ve added an LED logo at its bottom front panel.

    I just purchased a pair of these towers tonight, along with the Def Tech CS-9040 center speaker, and a pair of of Def Tech ProMonitor 800 rear surround speakers. They're being powered by a Yamaha Aventage RX-A760, which I also purchased this evening. I could not be more pleased with the overall quality of sound! I have ZERO complaints about anything. I was initially planning on purchasing a more expensive Marantz receiver, but after my helpful Best Buy associate walked me through my options, and demo'd both units, I was completely sold on this package. Everything out the door - including 100' of speaker wire and wall mounts for the surround speakers - I spent approx. $2,800. Worth every penny. It is truly an immersive audio experience to go along with stunning 4K video.

    Tested these speakers at Best Buy multiple times and almost pulled the trigger many times. For the price there isn't a better set of tower speakers out there. Paired with the Def Tech center speaker my receiver finally came to life. Movies are unbelievable. Clarity is crystal clear for action or drama. Want to hear the speakers really shine throw in a Blu Ray music/concert and you will be amazed. Listened to Wish you were here and Dark Side of the Moon and heard things I haven't heard in 30 years of listening to Pink Floyd. Dave Matthews live at Radio City on BluRay was my test at Best Buy and it sold the wife on this particular set up. Truly unbelievable sound if you are in the market just do it. Had an Oscar viewing Party and watched Hacksaw Ridge, The Fence, Manchester by the Sea, Moonlight and my guests all made several comments saying the sound was better then a movie theater. Just Do It.

    We tried wireless surround but it lacked intensity during a movie so we took it all back and went with a wired system. These vertical speakers have a heavy metal stand to hold them upright. They have an additional sub built in with volume control. These speakers rock. If you like watching movies (chick flicks or action) Definitive makes the perfect speakers for home theater. We have a 5.1 system and I could not be happier and the customer service is great. We listen to our music and movies so loud that I blew one of my book case speakers and Definitive replaced the speaker in no time at all. Get the extended warranty. It's worth it. Thanks Best Buy and Definitive.

    The sound from these 9020 vs. the upper level models is equal to; no need to purchase the 9040's,etc unless size and power ratings matter to you. Specs. are well within tolerances of 85% of the audiophiles. These are replacing 40+ year old Altec Lansing Valencia Studio Monitors, precede by 47 year old Rectlinear Bookshelve speakers.

    I love this speakers. I listened to the 9040 as well. The 9040 has a lot of bass too much for me. The 9020 with a nice definitive subwoofer are awesome.

    I bought a 75" QLED Samsung TV and bought these tower speakers to go with it. These speakers give you that theater sound for movies, sports, video games, and TV but then give you that club sound and concert sound for music. I hear no distortion when I crank up the volume. I have to disagree with other reviews and say that a subwoofer is needed with these to create the perfect sound overall. The ATMOS speakers that attach to the top are worth every penny and a must have item to pair with these towers.

    Speakers sound great and the sub woofer added to the towers and center channel help elimate the need for an actual seperate sub. This is a nice space saver.

    Very good sound comes out of this speaker. Built in subwoofer ads some punch.
